Robert K. found some fun action on late-arriving McKenzie River Spring Chinook
After shaking off the loss of a challenging summer steelhead which won the battle by shaking the hook at the last minute, Gary was very pleased to make good on his first back-bounced Willamette Springer.
Wes had an absolute blast and brought home not only a lot of stories & memories, but quite a few fillets as we went 12 for 14 over 3 days of salmon and steelhead fishing on his mid-July 2016 McKenzie River Vacation. Truth be told, we spent 1 afternoon with Wes's 6 year old grandson Taylor who put on a clinic of his own catching McKenzie Rainbows. No doubt Mom & his sisters got an earful once Taylor got home.
Super high quality fish are still in the mix on our MF Willamette & McKenzie Salmon/Steelhead Combo Trips. Always a pleasure to connect with fish like these relatively late in the season.
Gary prevailed on 2 out of 3 of the Steelhead we tangled with on his recent McKenzie River Drift.
Long time friend and frequent guest of RFGS, Chrissy D. recently lost a hard-fought battle with cancer. Her love of life, people, and fishing lives on in our hearts and memories along with that unforgettable infectious laugh and smile. Chrissy is holding a massive McKenzie River Steelhead, one of many toads she put in the boat over our years fishing together.
Brooke & her Dad enjoyed some fabulous Rainbow Trout Fishing while drifting the Upper McKenzie on Tuesday. The gorgeous scenery was certainly an added bonus to the fun action that at times was fast and furious.
